Southeast Arkansas College

AQIP Action Projects

 

SEARK College Action Projects and AQIP

The Action Projects undertaken by SEARK College their status are listed below. Action Projects were envisioned by AQIP as the process for maintaining a continuous series of projects that are integrated, and contribute to improvement of the institution. Completed Action Projects accumulate into a visible record of the College’s quality improvement activities over time.
 

For AQIP, the knowledge that institutions are working on a series of concrete improvement projects provides minimal evidence that quality improvement is alive at the institution. SEARK College maintains at least three (3) active projects which are shared with AQIP. As Action Projects are completed, new ones are declared using a selection process incorporating knowledge gained from those completed. The knowledge and skills gained from earlier projects are used to select, shape, and scope additional replacement projects.

Action Projects for the College serve the following purposes:

•    They are a means of focusing the institution on the work of at least three important projects to demonstrate our commitment to continuous     quality improvement.
•    They serve to guide the College in developing the constructs necessary to organize and oversee quality initiatives.
•    They stimulate engagement of faculty and staff in selection of projects and empower employees through involvement on project teams.
•    They open an avenue for ongoing peer interaction, feedback, and review.
•    They form a basis for developing the processes and activities which set in motion the writing and gathering of data for the first and subsequent Systems Portfolios.

The specific choice of Action Projects is far less critical than the communication of a shared sense of activity, movement, and purpose within the College. The concrete activities of Action Projects and the immediate results of the processes formed, serve to balance what might otherwise seem a long-term rather theoretical but essential activity, with a deferred payoff - creating the College’s Systems Portfolio.
